Telephone Campaign 2018

How students have helped to raise essential funds as part of the Giving to Goldsmiths Campaign

What is the telephone campaign for?

The telephone campaign is a unique chance for alumni to speak to current students to find out more about the University today, and our future plans. It is also a rare opportunity for students to find out more about the career paths of alumni and it provides them with valuable work experience in an ever more competitive job market for young graduates.

The telephone campaign also raises vital funds for Goldsmiths, helping those experiencing financial hardship and supporting scholarships and bursaries for some of our brightest students.

How did this year's campaign go?

A team of students were in touch with alumni from 25 February until 18 March 2018. They spoke to over 1000 alumni and over 300 decided to give, amounting to over £100,000. This support provides a lifeline to those facing unforseen financial hardship or facing barriers to education and enables students to make a real impact on campus and in the wider community.

Thank you to all of those who took this opportunity to give to Goldsmiths in 2018. You are helping to ensure that students from all backgrounds, regardless of their financial situation, can fulfil their potential and graduate. 

We still need your help

If you didn't receive a call earlier this year, please consider how a small donation from everyone can mean a real difference for the lives of Goldsmiths students.
